Humans, crabs … no one gets to virtually survive for This Week in Games.

It’s all about making things blow up, disappear or tap out. That’s what’s on offer from the new video games this week, albeit in various forms. Fight Crab finally launches on Thursday, letting players fighting off other crabs in all sorts of stupid, insane environments. Why does a crab have Thor’s hammer? Why is there a crab on a Vespa? How is a crab able to wield a chainsaw in the first place? Stop asking silly questions and FIGHT.

Elsewhere, there’s Koei Tecmo’s Fairy Tail. Being a Koei Tecmo production, you can expect lots of JRPG-style turn-based combat action. It looks pretty good so far, if you’re into the series — there’s a chunk of gameplay below.

Beyond that, Destroy All Humans! is back with its anti-cow brand of humour. Crypto’s invasion of Earth is the kind of light-hearted humour a lot of us can use this week. There’s also Hellpoint, a grim, creepy Souls-like adventure with a bit of a Hellraiser touch.

Plenty of interesting games this week. Nowhere Prophet was pretty good on PC, so anyone who’s moved on from Slay the Spire on Switch might want to check that out.

See any games you like this week?



  • Othercide looks right up my alley: brutal, turn-based and edge-lordy as fuck, but mostly it’s different.

    By Focus? Makes sense. The thing I love about Focus Home Interactive is that they back interesting shit.

    The Surge, Greedfall, Shipbreaker, Vampyr, Plague Tale, Call of Cthulu, Tehnomancer, Bound by Flame, Mars: War Logs, god knows how many Warhammer games, etc, etc… Not much that Focus publishes is first in class, or even AAA-levels of polish, but they’re usually solid, presentable, and different in interesting ways, and they clearly insist on everything they publish prioritizing their atmosphere.

    • They have a go, which is the most bogan and yet the most succinct description I can think of their publishing strategy.

      I love how weird a lot of their shit is, even if it’s not my cup of tea. Gaming is infinitely better because of more companies like them.
